Applying to college can be stressful and confusing. The personal admissions essay requires an immense amount of time, creativity, and technical writing knowledge. Competition for acceptance at elite colleges and universities is fiercer than ever and it's hard to know what will make your essay stand out to admissions officers. This high stakes writing task seems daunting and may leave you feeling overwhelmed and underprepared.
A professional writing coach can guide and support you through the essay writing process. The Essay Artist provides writing coaching with a focus on:
RESULTS. You will end up with an exceptional, polished personal essay. On time. Period. No matter where you are in the writing process, I will help you cross the finish line in style.
RESPONSIVENESS. You've got your coach on retainer for the entire journey. Reach out to me with questions, concerns, meltdowns, brilliant ideas, etc. as they come up.
EDUCATION. There is a difference between knowing how to write and teaching how to write. Teaching is my life and my passion. I am a certified educator with a Master’s degree from Columbia University in English Education. I can give you life-long writing skills to reach your academic and professional goals. You will learn something about writing and about yourself in the process.
EXPERIENCE. I have over 13 years of experience helping people craft memorable essays. My own personal narratives have successfully gotten me into top-tier colleges and won me grants and scholarships to travel and study.
SAVING TIME and STRESS. I’ve done the research, taken the webinars, and read the books about what’s current with college admissions so you don’t have to. Are you a procrastinator? Not anymore! My process will keep you on pace to avoid the last-minute rush. Sometimes it’s best to leave it to a pro!
HOW IT WORKS
Book a free 20 minute phone consultation where we will discuss the specifics of the project, including where you plan on applying, your personal goals as a writer, and your timeline. If we seem like a good fit, we can book out a series of 4 in-person or online sessions that fit your schedule and timeline.
In our first session we'll determine a topic for your essay, as well as create a basic outline. I'll create a customized curriculum that leverages your strengths as a writer and supports areas of improvement.
Sessions two and three are all about drafting and revising. Coaching and feedback are tailored to meet your needs and may address elements such as focus, voice, structure, sentence composition, imagery, theme, etc.
In our last session, we'll go over everything with a fine tooth comb, make any necessary tweaks, and do a celebratory happy dance for a job well done! (Seriously, you can pick the song)
